Skip to comments.Obama: The Affirmative Action President (Time To Revisit This Gem!)
Posted on 03/06/2013 5:12:15 AM PST by IbJensen
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?
Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer"; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as legislator.
And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?
Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass -- held to a lower standard -- because of the color of his skin. Podhoretz continues:
And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) "non-threatening," all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

You ask yourself " How Did He Get Up There "? You just KNOW somebody " put him up there " , but why? You KNOW he didn't get up there by himself ! You must return to your original question .............. " why " was he put up there in the first place?
Such is the case with Mr. Obama . Add to that ( just like the Post Turtle ) we don't know where he came from and nothing about his past . This know-nothing obscurity was pedestalized to ruin this nation.
Look in the background of the photo. There sits Mary Tyler Moore.....I mean, Nancy Pelosi. Does she look like a Marxist? How about Harry Reid? There are Marxists in the Democrat party, but the leaders, at this time, are your normal, run-of-the-mill Democrat thieves.
If he was white, the mediawhores would have ripped him to pieces in favor of Hillary. If he was a white republican, he would have been laughed off the stage even before that......
At the time I thought after Americans found out about Obama's radical past and his support of anti-Americans like Wright, his support would vanish. I was wrong. Americans don't care. Four years of disaster, and they voted him back in. America is lost. The takers have won. We'd be better off going for a different country now, because the future will be much worse
While I agree with the substance of the article, it assumes an objective future historian. That’s giving too much credit to historians.
All they need to do to answer that is look who he ran against.
This actually gives him too much credit. The grass roots machine including the MSM is what got him elected with a hat tip to the weak opposition from the GOP.
“This know-nothing obscurity was pedestalized to ruin this nation.”
You have triggered the mouthful alarm by packing too much truth into one sentence, report immediately to reeducation camp. If you do not know the location of your nearest reeducation camp or do not want to be reeducated you may contact the office of the vice president and someone named Elmer will come with a double barreled 12 gauge and explain the alternatives.
Were this worthless punk not a negro he’d be laughed off the stage
“If he was a white republican, he would have been laughed off the stage even before that......”
He would not even be allowed to use the alternate spelling of potatoE! The hardest thing for me to understand about the idiots who voted for this disaster is that they all still despise GW Bush and still blame him for everything wrong yet Obama presents more of the same of everything they claimed to find so wrong about Bush. Bush spent too much money...DUH, Bush started wars...DUH, Bush lied, people died...DUH, Bush was arrogant...DUH, Bush was dumb...DUH, Bush violated civil liberties with the patriot act...DUH read the NDAA, Bush dropped the ball when Katrina hit...DUH. I could go on but I have to start work in forty minutes.
Anyone who voted for this mess is a revolving idiot, that is someone who is an idiot anyway you look at him, put him on a revolving pedestal and look at all sides and you will find only idiot.
Bush was dumb...not so.
Bush dropped the ball when Katrina hit...not so.
And Bush loves his country!
You are the victim of of media propaganda.
You need to read more carefully, you are disagreeing with things I did not actually say.
Ever thought you might not state your thoughts clearly?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. What better enemy could you enlist and PLAN WITH for the demise of the western world than a population of people who harbor a seething hatred of our way of life. Over one and half billion people who shares the desire for our destruction, it wasn’t hard for them to enlist them to use as pawns to attack our country. The first attack, although destructive, didn’t achieve the goal. The attack on 911 gave us our new enemy without fingerprints of communism.
This know-nothing obscurity was pedestalized to ruin this nation.
Isn’t that called a mole?,KBG chuckles.
I actually try very hard to state my thoughts clearly. I said in the sentence preceding that laundry list that those were the things that the left claimed to find wrong with Bush. I guess I will just have to proofread it three times instead of twice next time. I suppose I should have added two words, “They say”, before all that.
